From a cabin in Jamaica comes a spoken word song made from loops, samples and layers of spoken and sorta-sung vocals inventing stories about a workers’ boarding hall which burned down years back and the foundations sits, still.
Come on along: Saint Patrick Day Parade Sound-seeing Tour – Vancouver, BC 2007 (23:20, 128K, .mp3, 22MB, stereo)
Sound-seeing audio of dozens of different musical bands including pipe and drum, fiddles and sticks, more pipers, marching bands plus sound-systems and even old Shriners with fez hat playing “When the Saints…” on Glockenspiels.
Vast variety of musical snippets – plus some gratuitous police motorcycle sirens and horses – generally unedited and without commentary but with natural crowd chatter in stereo.

Towntown core of Vancouver goes green today. The St. Patrick’s Day Parade which went down Howe and Granville streets between Smithe and Drake featured 2,000 participants and more than 100 entries went down Howe and Granville streets between Smithe and Drake.
On show where pipers, drummers, dancers, multicultural and community groups, acrobats, vintage automobiles and horse-drawn attractions. Last year’s successful street market again was set up on Granville between Robson and Smithe, with the KidsZone attractions located on Nelson.
